About the Speaker: Eunice Thompson
I was introduced to Eunice several years ago by Victor Lindsey as a person that could help our club establish a website, and that she did. She was a budding cactus and succulent enthusiast that worked with several CA clubs and mixed and mingled with all the folks "in the know." She's grown from a novice to a respected collector and individual that not only travels across continents on tours, she leads them. Victor was instrumental in orchestrating Eunice's presentation. Come see what she has brought back photographically from Namibia. This is pretty exciting! The photo below is just a tease from the internet. Welwitschia? Mesembs? Boabab? They are all there, WOW.
Please start talking with friends about this event and plan to bring them with you. Club membership is nice, but not required.
Other Agenda Items:
Update about the volunteer effort at the Cactus Garden renovation at the Laura Dearing Elementary School.
Springs Preserve Sale:!!!! Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014, 08:00 a.m. - 01:00 p.m. Not a lot of succulet material, but a good collection of plants that accompany our favorite plants in the hot, cold, dry, windy Mojave!
Then, Get ready for our Fall Show and Sale: October 11 and 12 at Moon-Sun Cactus and Koi Gardens: Get your plants and staging ready. The spring show was impressive, but let's out do ourselves!
And finally, we always need Volunteers for any and everything at the show and sale as well as to help run the club. Please consider giving the club an hour or two a month.
Ideas for October? November? December?
Hope to see you and some friends!
